Fantastic

Emilio M. Rizzi, 29.06.2013
Extremely awesome product. Exceptional build quality; this thing is built to last!! Although it was built to be used as overheads or an acoustic guitar, it works great on electric guitar (any clean or slightly distorted tones) and snare (probably also on flute and other woodwinds). In my opinion, it sounds a lot better than just dumping a SM57 infront of the amp, although the high frequencies are disturbing when applying distortion - dial the treble back on the amp and it should be fine. Using this in conjunction with a close-miked dynamic sounds great. 75 and 150Hz attenuation/pad and -10 and -20dB make this an extremely versatile mic. BUY IT NOW!!

Amazing quality for the price

Raphaël P., 01.11.2014
Having already good microphones to record, I bought this STC-1 mt Sontronics to use it first to capture my classical guitar in concert, especially in pubs, cafes-singers, cafes-theaters, which are very noisy places. Up until now I found it difficult to get a natural sound (too low with my clipped miniature microphone due to the effect of proximity).
With the STC-1, which has a good cardioid capsule (interchangeable with omni and hypercardioid) and an efficient attenuator at three levels (0db, -10dB and -20dB) as well as an efficient low-cut system (-75 Hz; -150Hz; -), I get a very natural live sound, with bass without feedback (Larsen). This low-cut reglable allows to face all the difficult cases and avoid correcting too much the low ones in the table (an Allen and Heath ZED-10). The capsule must be located at about 30 cm at the level of the handle and the guitar case.
I did tests not only with classical and acoustic guitars, but with "ethnic" string instruments (Andean charangos, four Venezuelan) and winds (Andean quenas that are difficult to capture well). All results have been more than satisfactory.
In study quality is also present, even with the voice. I especially appreciate the very low noise (-16dB A), interesting in both recording and concert situations. Another pleasant surprise, is the guarantee to life of the product, and also the good communication with the Sontronics team, which is a small family business.
The only reproach that I would make to this microphone is its size and weight, not always very comfortable on stage.
I totally recommend the STC-1 especially for guitars and other string instruments, percussions with not too low, flutes (locating it well ...). Very good product at an affordable price (123 Euros in Thomann).
